Looking for answers in a time when both the economy and the environment face a serious peril is critical, particularly because Serbia has been continuously surprising pessimists with its navigating through the nexus of headwinds. All articles are particularly dedicated to this kind of strategic and crises management responses to the geopolitical crisis as a new macroeconomics variable.
Inspired by the previous idea, this issue of Ekonomika preduzeća is structured in the following way. The first paper in the Transition Issues section, prepared by a trio of authors, D. Đuričin, I. Vuksanović Herceg and V. Kuč, deals with the green transition analyzing it from background and foreground perspectives, in Serbia, as a way of crisis mitigation and a shift toward sustainable and inclusive growth. A remarkable, fact-based paper written by J. Tabaković, the governor of the NBS, digs right into the relationship between the roots of inflation and monetary policy response. The third paper within the same section, prepared by a duo of authors, R. Kastratović and D. Lončar, focuses on the correlation between bilateral investment treaties and internationalization of enterprises. In the last paper of this section, D. Vujović explores the benefits and challenges brought by an increasing use of digital money as well as its implications for monetary and fiscal policy.
In the Accounting and Audit section, D. Malinić and S. Vučković Milutinović provide a brilliant accounting framework for ESG metrics, with special focus on investment in the 17 UN SDGs as a necessity of modern times. S. Randjelović’s paper in the Tax and Law section discusses the outstanding problem of public finance, the mutual interrelationships between a fiscal space and sustainable growth.
The Economic Growth and Development section includes two papers. The first one, written by a quartet of authors from different fields, K. Koloro, G. Pitić, E. Vlačić, and U. Milosavljević, is dedicated to the impact of Industry 5.0 on a small and open economy. The second paper in the same segment, prepared by a trio of authors, N. Savić, J. Lazarević and F. Grujić, looks into this topic through the other end of the telescope, namely surveys and analyses the generation Z’s expectations from business leaders.
